Jonathan Capdevielle, France
Adishatz / Adieu | Project Arts Centre | Oct 1 – 4
Jonathan Capdevielle spent his teenage years learning to imitate pop icons and singing the greatest hits from 1980s pop culture – especially those by Madonna.
Adishatz / Adieu is his self-portrait; a collection of songs that wanders between real life and fantasy. As his performance moves between music and conversation, he conjures up memories of his childhood and a past that continues to inform his shifting identity.
On a journey to capture as closely as possible the personas of others, Capdevielle strives to discover the most truthful version of himself. Sung a cappella and featuring a male choir, Adishatz / Adieu is a powerful study of the vulnerability of adolescence.
